Referencing a control from another report


Is it possible to reference a control from say report(1) when on report (2) as long as the report (1) is opened first as hidden? I'm asking this because I need to get the grand total net pay from report(1) for my Journal Voucher as a balancing figure. If yes , then how do I close it??????????

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The better choice would be to use DSum() on the query that report2 uses as its RecordSource.  That way you won't have to open the report.  Remember, reports don't store data, tables store data.
